Greek electronic composer Vangelis created his piece Albedo 0.39 while influenced by the blues and jazz music. The concept album is themed around space physics and the title is based on the planet's albedo; the proportion of the light it receives that is reflected back into space.
Albedo 0.39 features amazing pieces like Pulstar and Alpha and went on to become his first British top 20 title. Vangelis played every instrument on the record, which contains effective and versatile synthesizer passages. The sci-fi techno sounds and progressive parts mark the different sides of the record, infused with jazz. A truly wonderful listening experience and a must-have for every progressive and electronic music fan.
The multiple-award-winning composer of electronic, progressive, orchestral and jazz music started his career working in several successful bands, such as Aphrodite's Child. He composed over 50 albums and is still creative in developing new concepts.
»Mit dieser LP empfahl sich
Vangelis nicht nur den New-Age-Jüngern
der 1980er Jahre, sondern er kann auch heutige
Weltmusikliebhaber überzeugen.« (Good Times, Juni / Juli 2020)
